Best Route NJ to Carlsbad Caverns

Question

We are planning a trip from northern NJ to the southwest with Carlsbad Caverns as the first stop.

Apparently there are two main routes we could take. The first is down I 81, through Tennessee, Little Rock, Dallas and across Texas.

The second is I 80 west through Penn, over to Columbus, Indianapolis, St Louis, Tulsa and down to NM.

Which route would be best?

Thanks, we didn't know if winter weather was part of the equation.

I would definitely, take the I 81 route.

As taking the other route, you will encounter many small towns, and not good roads at times.

We live in New Mexico, and travel many side roads.

Either way, hope you will enjoy your adventure.

Also, another consideration.

The best place to stay in Carlbad, would be, the Carlsbad KOA.

We have stayed a few times, and the operator is very helpful.

Too bad you won't be making the trip in December.

You might enjoy Christmas on the Pecos.

About 100 homes along the river decorate.

It is a 45 minute cruise on pontoon boats.

Really a site to see in the South West

Thank you so much for the feed back. We will try the KOA in Carlsbad. We will be then going to Grand Canyon and then the National Parks in Utah before leaving the RV in Denver for three months. We will then fly back out in September and then head north to Rocky Mt, then Tetons, Yellowstone and then east through Badlands before heading home to NJ.
